Problem translating VB code to C#

Problem translating VB code to C#

Problem translating VB code to C#

I'm translating an old VB routine to C#. In VB I had the following code sequence

CODE -->

Dim SearchView AS New DataView(CurrentSchedule.Tables(0))
SearchView.Sort = "shiftgroup,worker_id"
SearchView.RowFilter = "worker_id <> 0"
Dim keys(1) as Object
' Set lookup values for this record.
keys(0) = nThisShiftGroup
keys(1) = nWorkerId 

I put the VB code thru an on-line translator and this is what came back


DataView SearchView = new DataView(CurrentSchedule.Tables[0]);
SearchView.Sort = "shiftgroup,worker_id";
SearchView.RowFilter = "worker_id <> 0";
object[,] keys = null;
//  Set lookup values for this record.
keys(0) = nThisShiftGroup;
keys(1) = nWorkerId; 

The C# code compiles without error, but when it runs as soon as it executes the "keys(0) = nThisShiftGroup;" line it throws the following error:


Object reference not set to an instance of an object 

What am I not doing?


RE: Problem translating VB code to C#



object[,] keys = null; 
YOu obviously want it two-dimensional, so try this instead:


object[] keys = new object[2]; 

Good luck!

That did it... thanks!

RE: Problem translating VB code to C#

Which on-line translator were you using?

And which one has anybody else here used and can recommend?

RE: Problem translating VB code to C#

Your favourite search engine should list several for you to experiment with. Some are fee based for more than a few lines of code.
